Prospective debate hosts should provide the information requested for each of these categories in writing by October 1, 1995. Please send three copies of the proposal to CPD executive director Janet Brown. Proposals will be reviewed by CPD staff, who will contact prospective host officials if further information is needed. Site visits will be made to those venues whose proposals appear to meet the CPD's needs; the visits will be scheduled during the fourth quarter of 1995. The CPD's board of directors hopes to make a final determination of debate sites during the first two months of 1996.
A formal contract will be signed between the CPD and each site chosen to host a debate. It will encompass the categories listed above, and set forth in detail the responsibilities assigned to the CPD and those assigned to the debate host.
The CPD staff is available to answer any questions regarding the guidelines and to give assistance which a prospective host might need in responding to them. The CPD recognizes that each debate requires a substantial effort on the part of the debate host, and is totally committed to the cooperative teamwork that a successful debate will entail.
